Hey my name is Zach Flaherty and this will be my first summer at Camp Granite Lake. I have a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Northern Colorado. I grew up in a small town called Andalusia, Illinois. I would consider myself an urbanite with multiple years living in Chicago and Denver. I also have volunteered as an ESL teacher for a year in Ecuador. By the start of camp I will have had 2 full years of elementary education classroom experience. I do however love the outdoors and love hiking and whitewater rafting. I’ve climbed a handful of 14er’s in Colorado, and summited Cotopaxi Volcano, one of the highest active volcanoes in the world standing at 19,347 feet. I am really excited to join the CGL family and enjoy the outdoors this summer!
